Is it safe to see the dentist during pregnancy?

YES, it’s safe! Your dentist will assess your oral condition and map out a dental plan for the rest of your pregnancy. You can expect some changes in your oral health during pregnancy. The primary changes are due to a surge in hormones (estrogen and progesterone) which can exaggerate the way gum tissues react to plaque. If the plaque isn’t removed, it can cause gingivitis – red, swollen, tender gums that are more likely to bleed. So-called “pregnancy gingivitis” affects most pregnant women to some degree, so it is important to keep your regular check up and cleaning appointments. The best time for any dental treatment is between the fourth and sixth month of pregnancy. Women with dental emergencies can be treated during any trimester. Only X-rays that are needed for emergencies should be taken during pregnancy. Lastly, elective procedures that can be postponed should be
delayed until after the baby’s birth.

When should my child first see a dentist?

The Canadian Dental Association recommends the assessment of infants, by a dentist, within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. The goal is to have your child visit the dentist before there is a problem with his or her teeth. In most cases, a dental exam every six months will let your child’s dentist catch small problems early. This visit is important for the parents to learn how to manage diet, hygiene and the proper use of fluoride to prevent problems. The dental team can show you how to care for your infant’s or toddler’s mouth. This visit also lets parents discuss teething and developmental milestones. It’s also important to bring your child in so that he or she may become familiarized with the dental setting. We look forward to seeing your little one!
